Huszar was last seen December 16, 2011 outside the Lamplighter pub in downtown Vancouver. An exhaustive search was done for him, with his family putting up a $10,000 reward for information on his whereabouts. They have requested privacy at this time, but have said in the past he was a caring, kind person who loved the outdoors.


Originally from Lethbridge, he moved to Vancouver to study at the University of British Columbia, graduating with an honours degree in geology.

Police say there is no indication of anything suspicious in his death, and foul play is not suspected.
